Suppose I own bar.com and have foo@bar.com forward to my foobar@gmail.com gmail.

Suppose someone writes to foo@bar.com.

I will pick it up in gmail webclient foobar@gmail.com account.

But my reply will appear as being from foobar@gmail.com.

Can I configure Gmail so that the reply will automatically appear as being from foo@bar.com?

"Is it possible to configure Gmail to reply to forwarded email using the original address?"

Yes. You need to create an alias first.

Go to Settings >> Accounts and Import >> Send mail as: >> Add another email address.

Once created you will find additional options on how to reply to your emails at Send emails from a different address or alias.
